    Essentially the data has shown through IQ testing that there are more genius and gifted men than there are women,conversely there are probably more stupid men than there are women as well. This is due to the fact that there is more variation in men in general, ie height also varies a lot more between men than women as well.

    This does explain fairly well why you don't see many female ceo's or hedgefund managers. Well, that and they don't wanna work 100 hours a week. Thoughts?

    I think something like IQ is extremely difficult to measure with any kind of accuracy and that drawing conclusions based on such measurements is usually spurious.

    IQ may not be a perfect measure of intelligence, but it's the best we have and is a good predictor for life, career and academic success.

    The reality is IQ is the most empirically tested of all the social sciences material, it's been rigorously tested and refined by schools, the military, etc, if it's bs then everything else is as well.

    You know, you don't have to make a graph. You have the standard deviation.

    I've known it for ages, I figured it out by experience and intuition before I even saw the data.

    But this is Sherdog, so I'm sure there are plenty here who didn't know this.

    If anything it's an underestimate. The guy is very intelligent, if not a genius.

    Also don't confuse sounding dumb with being dumb, there are a lot of genius' who aren't great communicators. Though he's not one of them, he must be ok at it as he became successful in the fields I mentioned by communicating.

    As the saying goes: Those who are obsessed with IQ often have a low IQ.

    guaranteed that @MeWithInfinityGauntlet considers himself "slighty above average IQ" despite showing zero evidence of it. To his credit, he is probably smart enough to recognize he can't claim genius.

    Looks like a gnuplot output so she probably had an IQ of 130.
